This innovative children’s book, first published in 1997, looks at the many animals depicted in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and provides a name of the animal both in English and in the Aboriginal language of the artist.
Magpie geese (gurrumatji), a goanna (carda), saltwater crocodiles (baru), an emu (gugaamgan), possums (marrngu), sharks (balangu) and, of course, a kangaroo (wambuyn) are among the animals that can be found in the twenty six works of art illustrated in And a Kangaroo Too.
